With six generations of service, Schaff’s goal is
to provide you with the finest selection of piano
hammers available. We are unparalleled in
the industry in providing quick and efficient
hammer duplication.
We offer two types of hammers that are designed and made exclusively for us.
Abel - “Royal Blue Hammers” - Imported from Germany (shown above)
We have worked closely with Helmut Abel to design a hammer that sounds and performs similar to those made in the early
twentieth century. In order to do this we have selected Laoureux top felt due to its ability to produce a rich, clear, and satisfying tone
that most people desire. Schaff “Royal Blue Hammers” have blue underfelt, and are available in 15, 17, and 19 lb. weights.
Imadegawa - Imported From Japan
These hammers are firmer than our Abel hammers thus providing a more brilliant tone throughout the piano. Our Imadegawa
hammers have magenta underfelt, and are available in 15, 17, and 19 lb. weights.
We offer three ways of ordering piano hammers:
-Carefully remove the
end hammers
from each section and
number
these as they lie in the scale. When sending in your
hammer samples, please leave the
shanks attached
to the hammer heads as removing the shank can damage the bore hole and
result in inaccurate readings.
-If using a shank other than the original, please specify the diameter. If using new Schaff shanks, specify part number.
-State exactly how many hammers are in each section.
-Indicate Abel “Royal Blue Hammers” or Imadegawa.
-See Page 198 for custom Hammer Duplication Form.
-Select the type of hammer by stock number.
-Indicate the number of bass hammers your piano requires.
-Determine which weight and striking distance you require.
-Standard bore hammers are shelf items and CAN NOT be matched to samples. If you send sample hammers, we will assume
you want custom bored hammers. DO NOT USE standard bore stock numbers when sending sample hammers. All stock
hammers have 30 bass and approximately 65 tenor/treble hammers.
